Have you ever been completely oblivious to something, and then all of a sudden everything clicks and becomes clearer? After discovering her true identity and embarking on the search for the Mortal Cup with her friends, she is shocked to find who her real friends and enemies are.

This all changes when he meets Clary because she thinks that his bragging and self-confidence is annoying. Jace sparks an interest in her, and secretly tries to slowly win her over.
